    Hey guys,

    as you see in the upper right, im from Germany. I have a few German sites that I want to order backlinks TO.

    Q: Will it hurt my rank if I just use "foreign" (e.g. from Englisch sites) links? Should I ONLY use niche relevant links on my blog or is this not as much of importance?

    thanks a lot

    I have English websites that have gotten real links back from websites in different languages. I think it's natural to get links back from foreign websites as well - as plenty of people speak English as a second language, and would have no problem linking back to an English website. I'd guess it would work in reverse, as well.

    as niloydaemons said, so far there is no problem, yeah still safe. but we know that google is like a bitch everyday. better you focus with backlinks from your country. "should be relevant?" yes of course, it will make easy rank your site. if you build "foreign" links, make sure it totally from good sites, not garbage.

    It depends on the degree of blackhat you want to adapt for your site. Usually if you are not doing any whitehat seo, then foreign links should do just fine.
